in reply to finite automata

I have an assignment to write on finite automata, and was told that perlmonks was a good place to start. I tried posting a few questions, but someone called NodeReaper kills removing them.

Since you seem to know a lot about finite automata, perhaps you can help me? This is really urgent, as the assignment is due tomorrow, and the dog ate my textbook.

You guys have been so helpful. One of your users provided me with some source code that does exactly what I want. The only problem is that it uses Quantum::Superposition to read the file without looking at it, and the rest of it seems to be written in Latin. This is just great, except I skipped all my latin classes and copied off my friend for the final assignment, so I was wondering if anyone knows the latin word for print?

Please remember this is URGENT!!!!! I have to have the assignment in tomorrow otherwise I'll fail.

Thanks again for all your help,

    Aliens are attacking the military base where I work part time as a coffee machine repair man's assistant, and I need to write a perl script to automate all the bases defenses to repel the invaders.

    I'm pretty comfortable with perl, but since the mainframe was one of the first things the aliens took out, I have to build another one, using three coffee makers, a mop, half a dozen paper clips, and my mediocre knowledge of electronic hardware.

    Please help me save the planet!


      To late, elbie. I'm afraid to say that all your base is now, as they say, belong to us.
